F5 GLOSSARY

Network Traffic Management

Network traffic management, also known as application traffic management, refers to a methodology that F5 pioneered for intercepting, inspecting, and translating network traffic, directing it to the optimum resource based on specific business policies. This allows network administrators to apply availability, scalability, security, and performance standards to any IP-based application, significantly increasing overall network application performance.

The F5 BIG-IP® product family filters and routes IP traffic to the best application or Web service, based on packet headers and payloads. The result is significant cost savings and dramatic gains in operational efficiency.
